Incognito doesn’t remove OL from needs list

The Bills first free agent signing, G Richie Incognito, certainly lessens the need Buffalo has in addressing their offensive line this offseason. However, GM Doug Whaley still intends to pursue more additions for their group up front whether it’s free agency or the draft.

“It lessens it a little bit because you’ve got a former Pro Bowl guard,” said Whaley. “It’s no mystery that our guard play was lackluster last year. We have to get better up front there’s no mistake about it and we think that’s a piece that can help us get better up front. Again we will look at everything.

“Our philosophy in building this team is to not only have great starters, but great backups. So that depth, that’s what we’re looking for. Injuries are a part of the game and if someone goes down we want that backup to go in and that expectation doesn’t dip.”

Whaley mentioned guard and tackle as position players they have in mind for the offensive line.
